Review for BUILD, Redwood City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Tipping Point Community has been a proud funder of BUILD since 2005! Suzanne McKechnie Klahr has created an organization that is smart, measurable and innovative and gives young people the opportunity to engage in business from a young age unlike any other I’ve seen. In a time when budget cuts are putting more pressure on teachers and administrators than ever before, BUILD is doing the heavy-lifting of getting more low-income students to graduate high school and go on to college. I am most inspired by the stories of BUILD students who become the first in their families to go to college. They are blazing a trail for their younger siblings and future generations; BUILD is helping families break the cycle of poverty for good.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've talked to many BUILD students and staff over the past 5 years and conducted fundraising events from which BUILD benefited directly.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ensure that more schools were able to offer BUILD programs to their students.
